The world is coming to loud, ugly end in "World Painted Blood," the just-leaked title track from Slayer's new album (out Nov. 3 via American Recordings). So how do the veteran metalheads usher in the apocalypse? By slowly building to a chaotic rock riot over six epic minutes. Listen here.

"Man himself has become God and laughs at his destruction / In which we trust a sheeped government and now it's going to collapse!" bassist Tom Araya sings on the track, which rises from soft-spoken vocals and atmospheric guitars to a chaotic rocker with a frenzy of tremolo. It's an ear-grinding good time, and, you know, sort of like Armageddon, except maybe even scarier -- run for the hills.

"World Painted Blood" is awesome, right? We think so. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
